Random fact about song
This is another anarchic number written by O'Connor for the film Breaking Glass. The monsters in this song are the faceless bureaucrats of Whitehall, where the administration of the British Government is carried out. The archetypal British civil servant wears a bowler hat and carries an umbrella, a somewhat outmoded stereotype in the 21st Century, but the secret machinations of bureaucracy frequently seem like a vast conspiracy to ordinary people who have the misfortune to clash with it. The song makes the point that the secrecy and rules are constructed first and foremost for the protection of the often anonymous and always unaccountable apparatchiks who at times have the power of life and death over us all. It will strike a chord with anarchists and angry citizens everywhere because this is something which is not unique to Britain; in many supposedly democratic countries, unelected bureaucrats are even less accountable. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)

Monsters in Disguise lyrics:


What kind of things are you that live on papers
White papers that you say apply to me
Reams of rules constructed for protection
Protection for yourselves, but not for me

You hide behind your walls of bureaucracy
I find that you've nothing to do with me
You're all aliens
I opened up my eyes, and saw to my surprise
Monsters in disguise, wearing bowler hats and old school ties

Today you went out to inspect your servants
I saw you wave and rave from my T.V.
You promised soon that they would have a paper
Give them the right to kill quite legally

So you hide in your palace of bureaucracy
I hope that you never contaminate me
You're all aliens
I opened up my eyes, and saw to my surprise
Monsters in disguise, wearing bowler hats and old school ties

I opened up my eyes, and saw to my surprise
Monsters in disguise, wearing bowler hats and old school ties
a-I opened up my eyes, and saw to my surprise
Monsters in disguise, wearing bowler hats and old school ties
a-I opened up my eyes, and saw to my surprise
Monsters in disguise, wearing bowler hats and old school ties
